We’re delighted to announce our migration to Telehouse North, London’s premier carrier-neutral data centre facility. Based in the highly connected London Docklands area and operated by Telehouse, a subsidiary of Japanese telecommunications giant KDDI, we’re confident that the data of our customers is in safe hands.
We’re proud to be in a position to deliver our customers with a higher reliability service and lower latency: North’s sheer size and diversity of carriers has enabled us to accommodate customers for whom latency-critical applications are crucial. Within full view of Canary Wharf, London’s finance district, our services can now cater for financial trading activities and benefit from the excellent communications infrastructure of this part of the city.
Over the next few months, we’ll be consolidating our services into Telehouse North from our Maidenhead and Coventry data centre facilities. This will give us the opportunity to move customers from our existing mix of Dell and Supermicro hardware onto a single new HP ProLiant Gen8 server base, improving our ability to source parts and ensuring we are running on modern, reliable equipment.
The migration will also mean access to an improved network, separate to that of our Maidenhead and Coventry data centre facilities. Telehouse North’s connectivity is supplied through a mixture of public and private peering, in conjunction with bandwidth from leading global carriers:
- TeliaSonera IC (AS1299) +IPv6
- Hurricane Electric (AS6939)
- Cogent Communications (AS174)
- Comcast Cable (AS7922)
- Telecom Italia/Sparkle (AS6762)
From today, you can order a new service from us in Telehouse North. We have ceased provision in Maidenhead and Coventry as part of this process. We will shortly be extending the following to services based in Telehouse North:
- IPv6 /64 subnet allocations for customers
- Private networking on hypervisor guests
- In-panel rDNS management
- Complimentary DNS hosting
- Optional DDoS protection
- Optional email filtering powered by Fortinet
We will soon announce details of our new secondary data centre facility, designed to replace both our out-of-band German data centre facility and offer failover services. This is currently planned to be a London data centre of similar prestige to Telehouse North.
If you have any questions, or if you wish to migrate and benefit from the connectivity and redundancy Telehouse North offers earlier, please contact your account manager. For more information about our new data centre and network, please visit our revised infrastructure pages.
